Could anyone point me in the right direction to get some pressed aluminium military number plates please?

Halford's can also do them to special order.

I have also been trying to find some military style plates.

unfortunately within the last couple of months all the rules have changed. So if you have managed to get some very recently please let us know the supplier?

I have bought in the past, only probably six months ago with no problems, but alas that is no longer possible. It appears show plates are no longer available.

 

update - Chestnut Registrations still do the military ones.

I havejust ordered them. Thanks for that info.

You quite often see a trailer selling number plates at larger steam fairs and classic car shows, they make them while you wait and are usually reasonably priced. I have even had military trailer number plates made with 3 rows of 2 digits.

You need the logbook and a photo driving license/passport to buy from these, not so sure with regards show plates

You don't need any documents for show plates, I have even bought regular plates for my car from mobile number plate traders without being asked for documents.

Out of interest for a British vehicle such as a Land Rover or Bedford truck, were all the military plates fitted made of steel or aluminum and did they all have 'silver edging' to the plate?

They were all made of aluminium, some had the silver edge but most did not, I remember seeing CL (civvy spec) Land Rover with white front and yellow rear reflective civvy style plates in the early 70s.

At the REME Workshops where I worked they made their own plates same as most vehicles use, perspex type with numbers and letters applied from the rear.. So if you used this type on an army vehicle of 70's to 90's era it would not be wrong. There would have been literally 100's made over the years there.

Just seen a MAN lorry with white band around, photographs of my Land Rover show similar from 30 years ago, the rear had scratch marks so assumed it was aluminium
